  1. I am praying for you, Irene & family. For CHRISTs love & comfort @ this difficult time. Your fellow CBS teacher, Chris & Steve Williams

  2. Irene and family,

    My thoughts are with you during this difficult time. I only knew Jim through the Farmers’ Market; he was a hard worker and had more wisdom and common sense than most folks. He’s irreplaceable and will be missed by many people in this community.

  3. Weeks family, it has been my pleasure to become acquainted with Jim since i joined the Shrine family. as you can see by my name we had a lot to talk about. I will always cherish his friendship and his service to the Fraternity of Masonry and Shrine.

  4. Dear Irene and family,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. I know the grief you are experiencing and the wondering of how you are going to go on without Jim.
    My prayers are with you.
    Phyllis Strubel

  5. Irene,
    So sorry for your great Loss. I didn’t know your husband but he sounded like a nice guy…Now he is at rest…He was here for a long time….God Bless you and your family. Kathy T.

  6. Mr. Weeks lived a long successful life, but not long enough. Rev 21:4 lovingly reminds us “He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mouring nor outcry nor pain be anymore.”
    Best Wishes
